I've been talked into going to the Year 11 prom at the end of term. I was actually looking foreward to it, as I've never been before (I'm an NQT). Until a senior member of staff told me it's not a good idea to actually stay for the sit down meal part. Someone please tell me why? Is it because the kids are likely to have no table manners? Is it because the food is usually awful? What are the positives and negatives of attending prom from a teachers point of view?
